Whitefield Lodge develops anthology of residents' stories

Whitefield Lodge Care Home has been working in partnership with a local writers' organisation, Campsie Writers Group over the last year to develop an Anthology about what the local area means to their residents.

The project came about as one member of the group began a Story Sharing service at the home, at which she would read short stories and poems, which would then initiate conversation and other people's stories.

The lady was so bowled over by some of the stories they had to share that she applied for funding to develop a bespoke anthology in which they could share stories from residents, staff and the writers' group.

So many accounts were uncovered that part two is now in the planning.

The Glasgow home held a celebration tea to mark the collaboration and success of the project - and is looking forward to working with other residents on the next instalment!
